    The lighthouse isn't really difficult, but there are two glitches that can make it difficult to complete.
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    When you attempt this there is a glitch that won't let this happen (well for some people anyway). I tried to do this for probably at least ten minutes, and it just won't work. I have seen videos of this on the internet, but it doesn't work for me the same as it does in the video. I also read you can redo the entire tower and it may work the second time around. I did the tower three times and was unable to complete this one activity.

    As of September 2017, users are still having issues with these glitches, so it seems unlikely for this to ever be fixed, but hopefully using some of the suggestions in this solution will help unlock it for you.

    This next part is a little note on my process and what it took to finally complete this achievement:

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    I have heard that if you do not skip any cutscenes or pick up collectibles that it is more likely to work, but I did one or both of these things every time and it ended up working on the sixth try.

    What I recommend is doing the lighthouse without skipping cutscenes or picking up collectibles and just trying over and over until it works. Hopefully this helps someone.

    Little Buburuza recommends clearing your cache if you get caught in the glitches.

    Some others recommend attempting multiple times, or restarting console after completing, and going back into the game, which will unlock this for some users.

    HerrKätzchenI occured the same glitch and looked around the Inet. This worked for me: Shut down the game by going to the dashboard and restart the game. When I continued at the bottom of the lighthouse I DIDN'T skipped the cutscenes and DIDN'T picked up a single collectible and it worked ( at least for me). Oh and I were online when I did this. I really hope this helps, as this is a really great game.

    IM TOM JWThe glitch happened to me to. After dash boarding and reloading the game I did skip all cut scenes and ignored the collectibles I did mash the RT button out of frustration at the end when you are using the light on the stage and it seemed to trigger the cut scene. This could however be coincidence as I was pissed after doing this level several times. Good luck with it everyone begs the question how this was not spotted in testing.

    Sammler 360I had 3 different glitches.
    1st: The 1st spotlight in the beginning.
    2nd: In the middle: The box fall down and didn't respawned.
    3rd: At the top of the lighthouse: I focused the spotlight onto the tent, but the sequence don't wanted to come.

    If you see 1 of these glitches, you have to restart the lighthouse level.

    W1cked GirlI tried this several times and kept getting the glitches. I cleared my cache and it popped as soon as I focused the light. Worth trying.

    Hanrec2Still glitching as of August 2016, on my third attempt I didn't touch the LT to focus the first spotlight and after moving the box it didn't glitch. That was the only difference between that run through and the others. Hope it helps as this almost spoilt a nice game.

    RiludeAs of 27th December 2017 this achievement still glitched.

    I found that if I shutdown my Xbox for 30 seconds, powered it back on and wen't into the game, loaded the chapter and completed the lighthouse again, without skipping any cut scenes, and taking my time, the achievement popped when I loaded into the next area.

    Hope this helps someone else

    WormyCoolnessYes Rilude confirms, As of September 2017 this achievement is still glitching! During my third attempt this achievement unlocked. Second attempt, cleared cache and applied online patch (2meg) when pointing light at stage nothing happens. Shutdown my xbox 360 and restarted, achievement unlocked! Hope this helps others!

    erichsouza76Well, this game has been delisted for who knows how long now and, of course, no updates for such a long time but I also encountered a glitch here as well when trying to focus on the stage.
    Cleared my cache, redownloaded the update, played the lighthouse again without skipping anything and it worked as some here described.
